University of California
The University of California (UC) and Jeffrey Frazier, a contractor who handled donation forms, billing and transporting bodies for UC, allegedly sold a spine from a donated cadaver and lost the rest of the remains. Joseph Coghill died in 1999 and his family donated his body for research to the university but when one of Coghill's sons received his remains, forensic experts determined that they were not Coghill's. A tentative settlement proposes that UC pay $455,000 and the contractor pay $175,000 to the Coghill family. (Jul-11-06) [LA TIMES]
